    Like many nongovernmental organizations, NTI relies on donors to fund its work. Our donors range from large foundations like Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to philanthropists to individual donors who give what they can. We have great appreciation for all our funders.

NTI's New Site

  • Who produces the data and research found on the site?

    The NTI website features content from three sources. The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) provides extensive resources, including the country profiles and treaties and regimes content. The pages produced by CNS have the CNS logo at the bottom. Global Security Newswire articles from, 2001-2014, are archived on the site. NTI produces the remainder of the content--either on our own or in partnership with others--including reports, articles and other analysis, our films and institutional materials, like our annual reports.
